Chester is about 5 years old, male mix small dog.  Owners abandoned him in the night when they moved out - tied him to a tree on a rope in the yard and there he stayed with no food or water for at least 10 days before someone realized he was left there and no one was coming back for him.  By this time the rope had done it's damage and cut a groove  around his entire neck about 1/2 inch deep - open, bleeding and infected. He was finally brought to a vet by Animal Control where he was treated for his wound, vaccinated, neutered and turned over to the rescue.  Scared and no longer able to trust people he recovered slowly and gained trust from the love and security he was receiving from us. Now he is a happy little guy able to run and play with other dogs and shows us his love by his constant loyalty and eagerness to please.  We decided to not upset him again and keep him here.
